Teachers-in-Training Practicum: Fall 2022

Actors Fund Teachers-in-Training will be asked to be Fellows for the 2022 Actors Fund Cohort so they can see and experience what we learned in action. During this time, they will teach 1 site element in order to gain the experience of teaching Professionals with guidance. Outreach Trainers are invited to come to each session of the Actors Fund Fall Cohort to observe class in real time.

The week prior to the Tech Prep Session on September 7, please notify the Lead Teacher if you’d prefer to teach the site element you presented in class (Session 8 of Train the Trainers) or if you’d like to teach a new site element. The Lead Teacher will then assign the schedule and let the Fellows know the dates and times of when they’ll teach.
